According to a report from Lettermen Row’s John Brice, the Tennessee Vols will part ways with one of their on-the-field assistants.
Cornerbacks coach Terry Fair, according to Brice, is on his way out of the program.
#BREAKING Multiple people on campus tell me that @Vol_Football will part ways with #VFL Terry Fair, barring “completely unforeseen circumstances. Office being cleaned out.” #Vols are expected to shuffle defensive staff duties as well & already targeting a new secondary coach.

Fair, who served as a defensive quality control coach under Butch Jones from 2013-14, was hired by Jeremy Pruitt in late 2017 to fill out his inaugural coaching staff at UT.
Prior to joining Pruitt’s staff, Fair served as Colorado State’s cornerbacks coach. He was on staff at CSU with current Vols offensive line coach Will Friend.
VolQuest reported on Friday that Fair was offered an opportunity to transition to an off-the-field role, which he declined.
According to Brice, Tennessee is expected to shuffle some staff assignments. Tennessee doesn’t currently have a special teams coach or a secondary coach. With Fair’s departure, the Vols have six offensive assistants and three defensive assistants.
